Oklahoma won it’s fifth game in a row last weekend against USC in Hollywood. The Sooners led the entire way and held off two Trojan runs — one at the start of the second half the the second one late — to win by a bucket.
Trae Young continued to shine in his freshman season. The Sooners’ guard scored 29 points and nine assists, which are just his average numbers.
He’s the best Diaper Dandy in America right now but this will be his biggest challenge thus far, going up a swarming Wichita State defense in its home building. Young vs. Wichita State has potential to be the matchup of the weekend.
Wichita State Shockers
The Shockers have bounced back just fine from that blown lead in the Maui Invitational Championship against Notre Dame. Wichita has come back to win at Baylor and at Oklahoma State but this team is at its best inside Charles Koch Arena.
Trae Young loves to push the pace but Wichita State is excellent at cutting out transition. Part of the reason why is because it is a smart team that always hustles back but another big explanation is the Shockers’ shot selection.
Of all the elite teams in college basketball, Wichita State is the least inclined to take threes. Gregg Marshall’s team likes to run offense, work inside-out and do its best to get a layup every time down the floor.
That isn’t to say WSU can’t shoot threes. It is hitting 40 percent as a team from beyond the arc; it just isn’t the shot the offense is working to get. Less threes mean less long rebounds and less run-outs for the opponent.
